This award strengthens CDP North America's capacity to maintain and make available as a public good its global Disclosure System. The climate change community draws upon this information system to track and accelerate the transition by companies, capital markets, cities, and other major economic enterprises, to a low carbon economy and implement their commitments made under the Paris Accord. This grant provides general operating support.

Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is a leading international nonprofit organization that supports companies, cities, states, and regions as they measure and manage their risks and opportunities on climate change, water security and deforestation, at the request of their investors, purchasers, and city stakeholders. CDP has worked in India over the past decade, and 59 influential Indian companies are now official members of their investor-backed disclosure process.
This award enables CDP to assist Indian companies that have disproportionately large amounts of carbon dioxide emissions to develop and adopt ambitious science-based targets. It supports CDP in building critical business leadership to accelerate decarbonization of Indian industry by specifically targeting high-emitting/hard-to-abate sectors like cement and steel, and to create an influential business voice that seeks reciprocal ambitious climate policy action from federal and/or state governments.

The Carbon Disclosure Project works to transform the way the world does business to prevent dangerous climate change and protect natural resources.

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) works to transform the way the world does business to prevent dangerous climate change and protect natural resources. The Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition accelerates and aligns high-level momentum behind carbon pricing in the run-up to the Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris (December 2015) and lays the groundwork for ambitious implementation post-Paris, through high-level engagement and the development of carbon pricing scenarios. The project leverages the World Bank's technical expertise and influence in finance ministries, and CDP's and We Mean Business's networks of companies and investors, to build a compelling narrative around effective carbon pricing implementation and to provide the business case for more companies and investors to use carbon pricing internally and eventually fully internalize the costs of carbon pollution.
